I inquired about Chanel makeup and skincare I use:

I then asked about lipglosses again as i felt they didnt answer that question.

Dear Michelle,

Thank you for your follow up e-mail regarding gluten in CHANEL

lipsticks. I am pleased to inform you that lip glosses are gluten-free.

Thank you for your continued interest in CHANEL.

Now, what about the tocopheryl in almost all my skincare/makeup products (different brands)? Does that mean they contain gluten? Also, are these companies only looking for the word wheat when researching these questions for me. Chanel took a little while to answer me. They said they were contacting the Research & Development team to get the answer. It sounds promising. I'm not healed yet, as it will probably take a while for me to feel different and I dont want to get screwed by wearing lipstick or using things on my face that could get in mouth that may have gluten in them. If i do, I wont even know because I'm still in the healing process. And I'm such a lipstick/skincare lover. I used to work at Chanel. I have tons of makeup from them! What do you think?

Firstly, thanks for writing the emails and for posting here.

This issue is really frustrating to me personally. I got zapped by lipgloss. All I could see in it was a tocopherol. I would rather have eaten a big old piece of my cousin's wedding cake. I know exactly what you mean. I went on a make-up and bath products rampage and wrote more emails than I remember.

The best we can do, I guess, is write to the companies in question and ask them if they can tell us about their tocopherols. Sometimes I had to explain what gluten is. I got good responses from some like Guerlain, L'Oreal, NARS, Caudalie and 100% pure. Some companies did the equivalent of throwing up their hands in the air and saying "you have got to be kidding me!" See the Juara and H2O+ posts, for example. Some just never answered me-- the majority, in fact. Some gave me the run-around, like Origins.

At this point, I am switching entirely to guerlain, caudalie, NARS and 100% pure for skincare and cosmetics. They are more expensive (100% pure less so) but I do not react to them. That is worth any price for me. Caudalie shampoo is okay.

Good luck Dolcenotte!

I will keep posting responses from any company I ask, in the hopes that it will make things a little easier for all of us. And I appreciate that you are in investigating mode too.

Wow!

Thanks for the info.

Even though it is vitamin E, I am really starting to think it is bad stuff.

      If you cant be sure then don't eat it!  
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
